Leadership for a Changing World is seeking nominations of 
community leaders across the country who are successfully 
tackling tough social problems. Twenty outstanding social justice 
leaders and leadership teams that are not broadly known beyond 
their immediate community or field will receive awards of $100,000 
to advance their work, plus $30,000 for learning activities that will 
advance their efforts.  The program also includes a major, multi-
year research initiative and numerous forums to bring awardees 
together with other leaders to share experiences, address specific 
challenges, and explore opportunities for collaboration.  

Leadership for a Changing World is a program of the Ford 
Foundation in partnership with the Washington-based Advocacy 
Institute, and the Robert F. Wagner Graduate School of Public 
Service at New York University. Nominations will be accepted by 
the Advocacy Institute through January 7, 2003.  Leaders must be 
nominated by someone who is well acquainted with their work and 
can attest to their qualifications.
